In 1063, the Ename abbey is founded by Adele of France, wife of Baudouin V, the count of Flanders, and daughter of the king of France. The abbey receives the village of Ename and other properties to provide financial income. The Benedictine abbey starts in the former Ottonian palace building, directed by a monk from the Saint Vedastus abbey in Arras.
